Privacy policy regarding membership of NCDC and the Bruckland SCRAN centre

 INTRODUCTION

 Northmavine Community Development Company is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of all personal data. Being transparent and providing accessible information to individuals about how we use personal data is a key element of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

 The purpose of this privacy notice is to help you understand what we do with any data you provide and how we process and protect it.

 Under the GDPR we do not have a statutory requirement to have a named Data Protection Officer. For NCDC, the Data Controller is essentially The Board. If you have any questions regarding your personal data please contact the Community Project Officer.

 THE DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

 -       Board member and employee data. This is the name, address, telephone number(s), email address and date of birth of individuals involved with NCDC as employees and board members. It is clearly essential for there to be effective communication among board members and employees.

-       NCDC member data. The name, address, telephone number(s) and date of birth of all who have formally signed up to support NCDC through membership. It is essential for NCDC as an organisation to be able to demonstrate community support.

-       Bruckland SCRAN recycling scheme member data. To operate the recycling project effectively we need to retain details of all members so as to issue membership credentials, allow access to the site and request renewal when membership lapses

-       Supplier data. Details as available publicly of businesses and individuals who supply goods and services to NCDC

-       Funder data. Details as available publicly of businesses, charities, individuals and organisations who have funded and continue to fund NCDC.

       HOW WE STORE YOUR DATA

 Data recorded on paper is held in files stored under lock and key at the NCDC office. Electronic data is only stored and accessed using password-protected computers and other digital devices.

 HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA FOR

 Recycling scheme membership data will be retained for a period of seven (7) years after membership is rescinded, in order to comply with financial audit regulations. After that it will be deleted or destroyed.

 Board and employee data is a legitimate historical record so will be retained indefinitely.

 Supplier data will be retained until the Board considers the supplier to be no longer under consideration for the provision of goods or services.

 WHO WE WILL SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH

 We do not and will not sell any personal or commercial data. We will only disclose information to third parties or individuals when obliged to by law, for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigations.

 YOUR RIGHTS

 You have a number of very important rights. These include

-       The right to be informed as to the data collected and how it is used, stored etc. This Privacy Notice is in itself a key part of that.

-       The right to ask us to remove your personal data from our records (unless it is necessary for us to continue to use the data for a lawful reason).

-       The right to have inaccurate data rectified.

-       The right to request a copy of the information we hold about you.

 If you have any questions regarding your personal data, please contact the NCDC Community Project Officer.
